RE: Day trip to the sea coast?
I am a native of Durham, which is just west of Raleigh. You would be only about 4 hours from the coast. And maybe 5 hours plus from Myrtle Beach, SC. As far as the NC coast goes for tourism and such, from about mid-point and southward would offer the most options. The northern part of the coast is largely unpopulated and open. Whether this is because of the outer banks landcape or what, I really don't know. Just keep in mind that the undertow of the water current can be very strong! I don't know if that helps or not. If you are interested, I could share some places to see. (I may have to do some web surfing to get the names straight.) My father and his brothers were always fishing, so we went to the coast several times a year just to fish. So most of my memories are from that time period. The NC coast has a lot of rich history, from early settlements to pirates to the civil war.
